Avalanche warning for region Heiane Thursday 09.12.2021

Danger level 2 - Moderate avalanche danger

Published:

Wind and fresh snow may give instable conditions in some slopes. Be careful in lee areas with wind deposited snow, typically behind ridges, ribs and in gullies. Especially where the wind deposited slabs are thin or soft, a slab avalanche is easier to trigger. Avoid convex terrain.

Avalanche problems

New snow (slab avalanches)

You can easily trigger avalanches on some steep slopes. Avalanches can get large enough to bury or even kill you (size 2).

Advice

The bulletin is a planning tool and may differ from the actual situation. Always make your own evaluation. To be 100 % avalanche safe, avoid all avalanche terrain.

Snow cover (in Norwegian)

Det er generelt lite snø i regionen, men på grunn av kraftig vind den siste perioden er det lokalt mye snø i forsenkninger og renner. Mye terreng og steiner preger snøoverflaten. Under 600 moh ligger siste dagers nysnø på bar bakke. Fra 600 moh er snøfordelingen ujevn og flekkvis.

Det er observert kantkorn ved bakken i Sirdal. Dette regnes foreløpig ikke som et skredproblem.
